Starring Will and Grace's Eric McCormack and Helmed by X-Files alum R. W. Goodwin, Alien Trespass is a retro 1950's pastiche film shot in homage to all those great low-budget sci-fi flicks from that era.
Set in 1957, Alien Trespass chronicles a fiery object from outer space that crashes into a mountaintop in the California desert, bringing the threat of disaster to Earth. Out of the flying saucer escapes a murderous creature - the Ghota, which is bent on destroying all life forms on the planet. A benevolent alien from the spaceship, Urp, inhabits the body of Ted Lewis (McCormack) - a local astronomer - and with the help of Tammy (Jenni Baird, "The 4400"), a waitress from the local diner, sets out to save mankind.

Trespass also features former X-files actor Robert Patrick, as well as Dan Lauria from "The Wonder Years".
While currently making the rounds at limited theaters nationwide, Alien Trespass will most certainly end up on DVD before too long. It looks to be a fun homage to all those bad sci-fi films we love.
